Curry Kabocha Squash Soup

Kabocha is a gnarly looking green winter squash that looks like a small pumpkin. It’s super unique because it tastes like a blend of sweet potato and pumpkin. Kabocha is sweet and dense like a sweet potato, but with as silkier texture. Compared to a sugar pumpkin, it has a deeper burnt orange color, smoother texture, and a richer squash flavor. You can substitute Kabocha in most recipes that call for winter squash.

Kabocha squash does NOT get the attention it deserves It’s an excellent source of beta-carotene, which is great for immunity and healthy skin, hair, and eyes. Kabocha is also rich in iron, Vitamin C, and some B vitamins while providing fewer calories than other squash varietals.
